(The Hill)   Trump Jr. calls Michael Moore an idiot for suggesting his family open up Mar-a-lago as an evacuation shelter, ya know given it's on an Island in the mandatory evacuation zone. He's right, of course, but talk about low-hanging fruit   ( thehill.com) divider line

I know there will be a plethora of "Michael Moore is an idiot" and "OMG He's FAT!" and all that, but Michael Moore has been right all along in seeing our nation go in the sh*tter. From Roger & Me to Trumpland, he's nailed it. Yes, his flair is a bit off the wall, but he's damn smart and we should be paying attention.

Also, for those asking:

His tweet comes in response to Moore, who tweeted on Friday before the storm battered Florida: "Has he opened up Mar-a-Lago as a shelter yet?"

Palm Beach County Evacuation Orders
Posted On Thursday, September 07, 2017
Hurricane Irma       September 7, 2017
Contact: Public Affairs 561-712-6358
Mandatory evacuations are being ordered for residential structures in Zone A and Zone B in Palm Beach County, effective at 10 a.m. Friday, September 8. A voluntary evacuation is being issued for those in Zone C.
 
Zone A includes mobile homes and low-lying areas prone to water intrusion.
 
Zone B generally includes the barrier islands, lands areas north and south of the Jupiter Inlet, and other surge-vulnerable areas along the Intracoastal Waterway.


Mar-a-lago is on the barrier islands.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mar-a-Lago

Michael Moore said it on Friday, the day after Palm Beach officially called for a mandatory evacuation of that area.

It just occurred to me that could go either way:  If half the country is coming to Moore's defense, then it's as I say.  If it's to Trump's defense, then it's a bit less than half, but more evenly spread about.

The point is, getting more than 1/10th the country on his side would be a step up for M. Moore.

I remember a thread of that on fark. Many people were joining in on calling him an idiot there.

There is no way Trump wrote that tweet. It's too sane, too to-the-point, and actually addresses the accusation.
 
2017-09-11 03:34:27 PM  
Or, at least offered the golf carts to help the carless evacuate.

All the way to far West Palm Beach.

Half?

Current population of voting age people in the US:  213,954,000

Voted for Trump:  62,979,879

Voted for Hillary: 65,844,954

Total voted: 128,824,833

Sat it out:  85,129,167

I think there are more problems than just who the candidates are.

Micheal Moore needs to go away forever.  He is a detestable and misleading partisan hack that does not deserve the limelight and hurts his causes more often than not.  Also, he's fat.
 
2017-09-11 03:51:05 PM  
Michael Moore is spot on more often than not. He uses sarcasm, irony, exaggeration and mocking humour to make his point. His movies have featured goring of several sacred cows, all the while making good points against status quo.  But, all that said, he is fat...

You mean like he already has?  And that he instructed every parish, monastery, and shrine to do so as well?   That pope?

They will already have the foreign employees working there and they'll better not be any damage or they will never get their passports back to be able to leave.

I'm not going to listen to either a man who's qualifications are being born lucky or a documentary film maker on this. Is there a source from FEMA who might weigh in on if it would have been an appropriate shelter?

Moore is your typical fat, pushy blowhard but he's made some good points in his documentaries. Some good points. This was obviously not one of them unless he was trying to be sarcastic.

/and I doubt he is familiar with fruit, low hanging or otherwise.
